Indochine Mining plans to begin an exploration drilling programme this week at its  Kratie North gold project, according to a statement.

Claiming the largest package of gold and copper leases in Cambodia, the ASX-listed firm will follow up earlier assay results with a diamond drill programme, along with other exploration.

Chief Executive Officer Stephen Promnitz said the programme was “a key step” towards demonstrating the potential of its discovery in Kratie province.

“While there has been little systematic exploration previously in Cambodia, the region is well known for world-class copper and gold discoveries.”

Indochine also owns concessions in Ratanakkiri province.
